From December 8 till December 15 I was participating on contact-making event called EntrepreneurShip – Sailing to Success in Denmark. The project was focused on people who are involved in organizations which are creating Erasmus+ project with young people and people who are interested in entrepreneurship at all. Together, there were more than 40 participants from 15 countries (Czech republic, Croatia, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Moldova, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Turkey).
During the week, we had so many different and unique activities as creative games, speeches from entrepreneurs, lectures about EU programs, discussions in groups about current global problems etc. We created awesome atmosphere full of inspiration where we tried to share and implement ideas and collaborations to help European citizens get a high-quality education (mostly with non-formal methods) and make Europe a better place to live.
One day we also spent in the third biggest city of Denmark – Aalborg. There was public event called INSPIRE where a lot of great people talked about their projects, NGO´s or businesses. Also that was place where we had workshops and really useful networking space where we shared our opinions on business, entrepreneurship and our experience. In the afternoon we made a global village with Christmas topic where citizens of Denmark had possibility to learn more about our cultures, including tasting our traditional food and drinks.
Thanks to great organization and spirit which we made, even when there were many different people, in different age and with different experiences, we spent there very useful time. As for the final results of this beautiful attempt, I pretty sure that in the future we will be able to see how much of a success this event was mostly because the people really want to make collaborations and to cooperate with each other in order to make something that really worth. Thank you EYCB for the opportunity to be part of this project!
